PARADIN, Claude. Devises heroïques . Lyon: Jean de Tournes and Guillaume Gazeau, 1557.
PARADIN, Claude. Devises heroïques . Lyon: Jean de Tournes and Guillaume Gazeau, 1557. 8 o (165 x 110 mm). Title within historiated woodcut border, 182 woodcut devices attributed to Bernard Salomon each with Latin caption, one large ornamental initial. Early 17th-century French calf gilt, compartments of spine with cypher of Gaston d'Orléans. Provenance : Gaston d'Orléans (1608-1660), brother of Louis XIII (binding and bookplate); Hans Fuerstenberg (bookplate); acquired from Georges Heilbrun, 1976. Second edition of this collection of devices of historical persons, the first to contain the explanatory text. Of the 182 devices only 104 were taken from the first edition of 1551, 70 appearing in this edition for the first time. Among those of French and foreign royalty are the crowned salamander of François I, the three crescents of Henri II, the crowned porcupine of Louis XII, and the portcullis of Henry VIII. Gaston d'Orléans, was the third son of King Henry IV of France and his wife Marie de Medici. As a son of the King, he was born a Fils de France. He later acquired the title Duke of Orléans, by which he was generally known during his adulthood. He was the eldest surviving brother of King Louis XIII. A VERY FINE ASSOCIATION COPY. Adams P-291; Brunet IV, 358; Landwehr 564: ("a book which played a very important role in the European emblem tradition"); Mortimer French 410; Praz p. 122.
